The 21 Day Reset Challenge forced us to stop and look at what we were doing to ourselves and our goals by abusing our bodies with an unhealthy diet. For each step forward my wife and I made in the workouts, we were probably taking two steps backwards with our diet. The Challenge provided not only the information we needed in recipes, ideas, and the impact of what you eat, but a format that was engaging and a support group from other athletes to the coaches who were also completing the challenge.
This was a major lifestyle change for me and I wouldn't have done it without this challenge. It forced me to rethink everything I put into my body and think of it not just as food satisfying a craving but fuel to a machine. If I wanted a clunky, rundown machine, I could keep skipping meals and snacking on sugar and empty carbs, and gorging on fatty meals without concern for portions. If I wanted to reach my goals and turn my body into an efficient and fit machine, I had to have a plan, stick to it, find supporting partners, and educate myself on when and what type of fuel to consume. The Challenge provided all of that and the changes my family has made since then have stuck and changed not just our daily diet but our approach to our family's fitness and well being.
So glad to be a member of this community and all it brings, from classes to clinics and fitness to friendships. *JAZZ HANDS!*
